A couple of weeks ago I was approached by Daniel at Swig Hip Flasks, asking if I would be interested in reviewing one of their products. Once I had looked into their company and read their story, I was happy to say yes, as my husband likes a drop of whisky and has used a hip flask in the past, when we have been out on long walks with the dog or cold nights out.
I was told to choose which product I would like to review from their entire website, as you can see, you really are spoilt for choice, with the various designs they have on offer. I chose the Swig Executive Moulded Union Jack Flask.
When the flask arrived, I was very impressed with the packaging and the product
As you can see, it comes in an attractive presentation box, in its very own case. On holding the flask, I was very impressed with the quality and feel, made from one piece of stainless steel, there are no seams so no risk of any leakage,
- The flask is 170ml (6oz).
- The body is seamless. So there is no risk of leaking.
- The bottom is flat, so it can stand up straight.
The SWIG Flask itself is snugly and firmly encased in the Executive Pouch: the high-end veg tan leather is ‘wet moulded’ by leather artisans based in the Spanish town of Ubrique.
The stitch and leather cut is exact. The pouch is perfectly moulded to fit the flask. The feel is sleek, with a pleasing weight in your hand.
There are a variety of styles of the pouch, so you will find something to suite your own style.
Each flask comes engraved with its own unique number, and you receive a card confirming the authenticity with the number, and accessing you to the swig owners club, where you receive various offers.
If you have a wedding coming up and need a present for the Best Man, Ushers, Fathers, or a special birthday, or just because, and are looking for that special present. I would not hesitate to recommend Swift Hip Flasks.
The only downfall my husband did actually find with the hip flask, was deciding which one of his growing collection of malt whiskeys he was going to try out first in it.
